There are two specific tactics you can use, to control or change the speed of the game when you're playing volleyball.


Liberos Should Set The Ball High

In a perfect game, the libero or back row players would pass the ball to the designated setter, who would be the only player to set every second ball.

If the designated setter defends the first ball then she can't set the second one, someone else has to.

In this case, one of the most popular offensive volleyball tactics teams follow is that the libero steps in to set the ball. 

It use to be commonplace that the right side hitter also known as the 'off side hitter' or "opposite" would step in to set the ball that a starting setter dug.

Nowadays, liberos playing volleyball are positioned in defense so that when the setter digs a ball, the libero steps in to set to the front or back row.

If this situation occurs, then it should not become a weak point in your team's offense.

To maintain control of the pace of the game the libero should be sure to get her knees, hips, shoulders and forehead lined up underneath the ball to get into position to set a nice high ball to her outsides or backrow hitters.

Liberos should practice being as good a setter as the setters.

They should do alot of setting drills in practice because they are the second most likely player to set a ball on the court.

But when they do set, they're setting from the back row and especially in high school the setter needs to give a hittable ball to their potential hitters. 

It's best not to risk increasing the speed of the game unnecessarily by shooting a fast set to the middle or outside.

The libero needs to help the team establish it's own rhythm by setting the ball high to the outside spiker or backrow hitter. 

By doing this, liberos

  • reduce the chances of committing unforced errors and
  • increase the chances of building trust among their hitters by giving them hittable balls.
